Excellent uplifting floral. Definitely get a bit of the waxy lily, a bit of the peony, although not in the definite notes, and hits of bright bright green. Like wandering through a very airy garden with honeysuckle bushes, fresh and sweet. Moderate longevity and I can see why it's a bestseller for L'Artisan Parfumeur.

A light linden fragrance with a little bit of crushed green. It's nice, I like it, but it's not strong or lasting.

I love this scent, it is very feminine, soft and delicate. Agree with other posters that it's a nice combination of floral+green, disagree that it is "generic". On me, the longevity is excellent, I smell it on my hair and sweater/jacket the next day after I applied it on my skin.

That is definitely floral. It reminded me of my Soviet grandma's Lilly of the Valley perfume, but once I got past that, didn't seem too bad. I see how the strong floral scent could be off putting to some, and attractive to others. I find it pretty neutral. I'll finish the sample, but won't be purchasing the bottle.

This has been my standard for day perfume for many years. I wore Jessica McClintock when I was in college and this is, to me, a more refined, grown up version of that floral profile. Easy to wear in warmer weather and people comment that I smell good. My only sadness is that it fades quicker than most; however, it’s a good thing if you want a different scent for night.

I can't explain why I like this so much. Above and beyond the notes (or maybe a note I don't know), there is this "thing" I smell when it's on my skin that reminds me of being in love - the smell of kissing a lover. I don't know how else to explain it! It makes this my favourite perfume - it is magical.

Floral magic!

This smells EXACTLY like jasmine tea to me. It's a very light fresh floral which yes, as most of the other reviewers have said, is best suited to warm, sunny spring days. I don't get any linden, which is disappointing, but everything else is extremely well blended -- this is definitely not a tuberose monster. It's a bit too simple for my tastes, but it is very pretty. So if you're looking for something sheer and uncomplicated, this certainly is worth a try.

Starts as a meh generic floral, perks up to a nice hyacinth. Some artificiality to it. Not something I'd even sample again.

this was unusual for me. partly because i didn't know what to expect but also because of the similarity it has with mimosa. Though i did smell the jasmine, tuberose, and orange blossom, but ironically i smell more of a violet aspect and the overall finish was more towards a mimosa then something you would expect the perfume would deliver. Literally is identical to Calypso Christiane Celle's Mimosa perfume except more fruity and sweet and expensive. I still like it though.

I bought a full size bottle of this lovely spring scent. The top note is a strong turberose. After the first 15 minutes the true beauty of this perfumes begins! It takes me back to when I was a little girl playing in my grandmother's garden by her mock orange bush. The orange blossom is truly breathtaking. The unfortunate thing about this perfume is that it is not very strong and it doesn't last very well. Most perfumes I only need one spray. This one I need at least 5! My only wish for this is that it was stronger and longer lasting.

Don't know why I bothered sampling this- I don't really like white florals, and none of the other notes are really my thing either, but I guess I got caught up in the hype of this. Oh well I can put my curiosity to rest now. It's a sweet honeyed tuberose. Nice but not for me.

When I first put it on, it was a light floral bouquet. Was surprised at the drydown. It became a soft, subtle gardenia on my skin. Really pretty. Will have to try it a few more times. Am considering buying.

I love floral and fruity fragrance. This is a little too woodsy for me and did not last long.

It's perfect, if there is such a thing.

Generic, pink fruity girly. There are many exactly like this.

This is a lovely perfume but alas, it doesn't have staying power on my skin! It is a little overwhelming at first whiff but quickly evolves to an airy, spring bouquet. I love it but have to reapply it every few hours!

A vapid and boring light floral with a hint of green note. Not for me
By   - from Taipei on 9/17/2009
I didn't like how this smells in the bottle...but after it was applied to skin, it changed a lot. I actually had someone tell me they were looking around to see what was blooming and then they realized it was me. Everyone who smells this on me loves it, even though I'm a little less enthused than they are. But since perfume is almost like lingerie- sometimes you wear it for more than just yourself- it matters a lot that other people like it. Also, because it smells so realistically like blooming things, it made me realize that the outdoors is a much more "blended" scent than most perfumes would have you believe. But this one seems to have not just the "blooms" smell, but some of the peripheral smells that go with things that are blooming- pollen, a little earth, a little leaf...I'm not really experienced in perfumes that contain Linden as a note, so I think that must be the thing that adds the pollen-y smell that is what makes people do the double-take that something is actually blooming.

I really adore this scent. The first time I wore it, I thought "wow, this really smells like spring" I'm not much of an expert in detecting notes, but orange blossom seems to be the most prominent to me. This perfume is soft, ladylike and fresh. Although this isn't terribly complex, I still love it.
